Pretty Box

I'm taking an online class from Sue Bleiweiss called Creative Box Making for the Fiber Artist.  Yes - I'm taking another class!  I was going to take a break from online classwork, but this class looked way too interesting to pass up.  And it is!

box1 This box is from Lesson 1.  I used copper screen for the window spaces.  I had some in my stash - purchased for a clay project that never got off the ground!  Not sure I even remember what it was now.  Jeesh! 

boxtop01 This is the view from the top.  I found the paw print at a scrapbook store (it's a brad) and the color is close enough to copper that I figured it would work. 

This is a cute little box, suitable for holding something with a fragrance like lavender or scented candles.  But not for lighting the candle!  Very flammable - Yikes! 

I've been wrapping up a couple other projects.  Still some details to finish up, but they will be ready for posting in a few more days.  Here are a couple of "teasers."







Stay tuned.

Love those colours for the box Liz, and I can't wait to see the results behind your teasers!
